Well, today, is our dog’s second Birthday. I thought I would write about it, because it is only by God’s grace that she is still alive. She ate rat poison that was left in the church parsonage and had to have a complete blood transfusion last June (2006). The doctor told me that she had a 50/50 shot of living. He definitely told me this when I was 6 months pregnant, and very emotional after the big move and the sudden death of my grandmother. This was a time in my life when I was depressed, and my relationship with Jesus was not even a relationship. I am glad Millie Boo almost died because I have never prayed that hard or that much. God does get all the glory for saving her life.
I am thankful for Millie Boo because:
- She sanctifies us daily, and has brought us closer to the Lord during her near death experience. She teaches us how to die to ourselves, and depend on God for strength.
- She makes
smile daily, even laugh Jackson
- She relaxes me by licking my feet daily
- She teaches both me and Charlie patience. She is a high maintenance dog because she requires a lot of time and attention (all dogs really need a walk daily, so think about that before you get a cute little one)
- She always has a loud, friendly welcome!
